At the first court hearing for the case, which occurred only two days after the father was served with the court papers, Attorney Meyers requested an immediate trial.

Dismissed Temporary Order of Protection

Our Client was served with a full Stay Away Temporary Order of Protection that was issued on an ex parte basis by the Family Court, County of Suffolk. After retaining The Meyers Law Group, P.C., to represent him in this matter, on our first appearance in Court with our client, our attorneys fought vigorously in Court for our client's rights, demonstrating to the Family Court that the allegations set forth in the Petitioner's Petition were legally insufficient to warrant an Order or Protection. As a result of our attorney's efforts, the Family Court, Suffolk County, vacated the previously entered Stay Away Temporary Order of Protection, dismissing the action in its entirety in one week of hiring the firm!
